Men in Black 3

Finally, I had the chance to visit the movie house again. ^^ (What a good way to treat myself after a tiring day full of mixed emotions). I had the chance to watch MIB 3 and had fun watching this film.

Just wanna share some info about this movie.


In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind. -- (C) Sony (Source:

Favorite Lines:

Griffin: A miracle is something that seems impossible but happens anyway

Agent K: There are things out there you don't need to know about.

Agent K: Don't ask questions you don't want to know the answer to.

Griffin: The bitterest truth is better than the sweetest lie.

Precious Gift

It’s been a year since I left my INF family. My 1 year of stay was really worth it. I was molded into the person that I am today with the help of my new found friends in the company. Though it was short, I had a lot of fun with them.

I browsed through my files earlier and happen to see a friend’s gift before I left. I watched it again and until now it never failed to put tears in my eyes. I just felt that I am really special somehow. Thanks to you mah friend!


Nagsasa Cove via Mt. Nagsasa (Day 2 - May 27, 2012)

Previous Post: Nagsasa Cove via Mt. Nagsasa (Day 1 - May 26, 2012)

I really had a very good sleep. I was really recharged when I woke up the following day so why not start the day  with an early photo shoot. Ay naman! hehehe...

After a very quick breakfast, we started to fix our things so we could leave the place and transfer to Camara Island.  We didn’t leave the place just like that. Of course photo op was next on our list.

We had our last glance of the place. A lot of fun memories...

It took us 45 minutes to transfer to Camara Island. The sceneries were great. The only irritating part was the noisy boat machine that disabled our hearing organ for a short while (hahaha…) but other than that, the boating experience was fun. Photo op was still part of the ride. ^^

Talking about the scenery... Check this out:

I really this shot, in fairness may silbi ang kunyari kong camera

I really love the cloud formation

When we reached Camara Island it was so freakin' HOT that I failed to take my own picture of the great scenery from the shore. We went to Kuya Joey's house so we could have a decent shower and lunch. That was also the best part of the trip, to get to know the people around you. We goofed around and had our chit chat session.

Before ending our trip, we passed by Coffee Shop's Rooftop Hotel. We wanna try their big tacos. (Umay to the nth level lang ito. hahaha...) 

12 PEOPLE... ONE GOAL... TO HAVE FUN! The trip and all the challenging part of the trekking was all worth it. It will not be as fun as exciting as it was if not with the people I'm with in those 2 nights and 2 days that we were together. I know that was not the first and the last for the group... that was just the start. Until next time Nagsasa Peeps ^^

Away We Happened (Episode 4)

Last week on Away We Happened:

Jean had her job interview while Daniel met his friend Ben to show the pictures that he took. Ben was so busy discussing something but Daniel’s mind was out of their discussion (thinking of Jean). Ben had to ask a couple of things from Daniel to make him realize that he likes Jean.

While Jean was on her way out of the building, Jeremy (Jean’s ex) called her and asking how she was. On the other hand, Daniel went to his pub with Ben to hand him a couple of documents. The documents fell on the floor so Daniel had to pick these documents now knowing that the letter of Jean to Jeremy was included. 

Watch Episode 4 below:

How will Daniel react to the letter?
What is Jean and Jeremy’s history?

Nagsasa Cove via Mt. Nagsasa (Day 1 - May 26, 2012)

Thanks Pats for this shot. Lovely!^^
Major Jumpoff: Sitio San Martin, Subic
LLA: 14°49.03N, 120°06.25E, 450 MASL
Days required / Hours to cove: 1-2 days / 3-4 hours
Specs: Minor climb, Difficulty 3/9, Trail class 1-2
Features: River crossing, beach

I’ve conquered a couple of mountains from the South so why not go up North this time. ^^ My bestfriend and I had plans way back to travel out of town. Good thing our schedule permitted us and one day we found ourselves planning about conquering Nagsasa. I got so excited about the idea of trekking up north again which includes hitting the beach before the summer season ends. Aside from that, a new set of people to meet which thrills me more. This is what I love about travelling; you get to see new and wonderful places, new learning and new found friends.

The group met at Victory Liner, Caloocan around 9PM. At exactly 11:30PM, the bus we boarded left and we're bound for Olongapo. We tried to catch some sleep on our way to Olongapo (which most of them did, except me and Mario. EXCITED MUCH MODE). We arrived at Victory Liner Olongapo at 2:05AM. From there, we had to ride a jeepney going to the jumpoff point (Sitio San Martin, Subic). On our way to San Martin, we had to stop by PNP to secure our permits and pay the registration fee. We reached the jumpoff point at 3:30AM and secured our guides.

Very True!

The trek started at 4AM, it was slippery and a bit muddy due to the rain showers. That didn’t stop us from this adventure. Wearing our headlights, we started to walk in a very dark trail. Since it was dark, we had to pass messages to one another to make sure that no one would get hurt with rocks or if the path is going left or right. The initial walk was long but since we started long before sunrise, the atmosphere helped to make the walk more relaxing. We also crossed a river. The trail was not steep but it was long. We were so excited to see the sunrise so we stopped for a while to capture that moment.

First pic that the group was complete. Thanks to Kuya Joseph! pwedeng wede

Obviously we really enjoyed our rest. We really took time to get our own shots of the lovely view. The wonderful view served as my energy booster so I decided to start the trek again. I can’t wait to see the view from the ridge.

The view from the ridge
yes you got it right. it's a rainbow!
“There’s a rainbow always after the rain…” – this line from the song Rainbow of Southborder is not always right. We had the rainbow first before the rain. While waiting for others to reach the ridge, the rain started to pour. I was worried that time since our guide told us that we will descend in a few. My concern: it’ll be hard for us to pass by the steep path. We also failed to take pictures on the ridge due to the rain.

NOTE: You can actually see 2 other mountains on your way to the ridge (Mt. Balingkilat and Mt. Cinco Picos)

While crossing a steep path:
Me: Kuya! May nalaglag na ba dito?
Guide: Ay ma’am meron na po… pero nakakapit
(may lihim akong ngiti habang tumatakbo sa isipan ko “buti naman”)
Guide: Sa katunayan po dito po nangyari sa kinatatayuan natin ngayon
(OO na! sabi ko na, minsan di nakakatulong ang pagiging matanong ko. Hahaha…)

When we finally passed that path, a breathtaking view caught our attention. We saw the blue waters of the beach. It gave us a super boost of energy and disregarded that we were super wet from head to foot.

Ang mga basang sisiw. hahaha...
Cresdits to Pats
After our challenging experience on the ridge, we proceeded with the trek. As per our guide, it’ll be 2 more hours to reach the shore (depending on how fast we can pass the valley).The trail between the saddle and the shore was long.  The trail ran through rocks, dry river, streams, soft sand, hard sand, cogon and more sand.

A few hours later, we could already see the shore. It was a sight to behold. All the efforts spent trying hard to get to the beach were worth it. Everything was worth it!

We reached the camp site at 10:15AM. The beach and the river were breathtaking. It has soft white-grayish sand (ash-colored) with Agoho trees (resembling to Pine trees) around the place. Although, there was no electricity, no drinking water and no cellular phone signal in the place. It only has a common CR and water pump to share with other visitors of the place.

Though tired and weary, we still managed to set our tents and cook our much awaited Brunch.

The entire time we spent on the beach was dedicated to having as much fun in and out of the water. We swam, had pictorial sessions, walked along the shore, getting-to-know-you time and socialize.

After dinner and short chit chats with them, I felt my eyes were getting heavy. I realized that I haven’t gotten any decent sleep and rest. I ended up, sleeping earlier than they did. I actually lost a lot of juicy topics and discussion whilst I’m sleeping. End of Day 1.

PS. Day 2 will be my next post ^^
